Through time-mists, history
an eternal mystery,
keeps the brilliant guessing;
missed pieces further confound,
inspiring mythologies believed —
sun-star pantheons stretching midday to midnight
and back again —
while we, fantastical peoples of the future,
search for answers
attempting to discern across distance unfathomable.
This is no science fiction,
I read this fascinating article on new theories about Stonehenge last night and it got me thinking about our understanding – or attempts anyway – of history.
